Malta U21 1-1 Wales U21

Hal Robson-Kanu rescued a draw for Wales Under-21 in their friendly away to Malta U21 in Ta'Qali on Tuesday.

The Reading striker met Neil Taylor's low cross to nod in off the post, while Robson-Kanu had earlier also rattled the woodwork with a fierce drive.

Malta had taken the lead on the half-hour when John Mintoff raced down the right wing to set up Terrence Vella.

Maltese keeper Henry Bonello then did well to deny Elliot Chamberlain, but was given no chance by Robson-Kanu.

After this work-out for a largely experimental Wales U21 side comes the real test of their final two Uefa qualifiers in September against Hungary and Italy.

Both are away from home and one win looks certain to confirm at least a second-place finish and hopefully a play-off spot.

Wales: Jonathan Bond (Watford), Ashley Richards (Swansea City), Neil Taylor (Swansea City), Mark Bradley (Rotherham United), David Stephens (Hibernian), Aaron Morris (Aldershot Town), Billy Bodin (Swindon Town), Joe Partington (AFC Bournemouth), Hal Robson-Kanu (Reading), Jake Taylor (Reading), Shaun MacDonald (Swansea City, capt).
Subs: David Cornell (Swansea City), Daniel Alfei (Swansea City), Tom Bender (Colchester United), Lee Lucas (Swansea City), Ryan Doble (Southampton), Jonathan Williams (Crystal Palace), Elliott Chamberlain (Leicester City).
